New Scholarship Honors Dr. Mark Haskins’ Legacy

Dr. Mark Haskins

For the past 40 years, Penn Vet Pathology Professor Dr. Mark Haskins has been impacting the lives of countless individuals including students, residents, postdocs, and colleagues from around the world. He has been described as a teacher, mentor, counselor, and role model who has given a tremendous amount to the veterinary profession through his dedication to advancing genetic research.

In honor of Haskins’ retirement this year, friends and colleagues gathered in May to celebrate his many career highlights and to announce the newly created Mark Haskins Endowed Scholarship Fund. A total of 109 supporters came together to make the scholarship a reality, and the fund will be used to recruit talented, aspiring veterinarians as they follow in Haskins’ footsteps.

There is still time to join in our efforts with a gift to the Haskins Scholarship. Every contribution increases much-needed resources for recruitment to ensure that top students choose Penn Vet regardless of financial considerations. Gifts of all sizes have an impact, and can be made by contacting Jillian Marcussen, Director of Development and Board Relations, at 215-898-4235 or
